You are misunderstanding what Capture NX2 does. There is no such thing as an edited raw image.
When you save a NEF file from NX, it preserves the original raw data unaltered, plus the NX Edit Steps. NX can read the raw data and replay the Edit Steps to reproduce your edited image, but no other program can do that. NX also saves a JPEG preview of the edited image. That is what Cover Flow is displaying. If you view the file in a program, such as Preview, that can interpret the raw data, that is what you will see. No other program except Capture NX2 can interpret and replay its proprietary Edit Steps.
If you want to use an NX-edited image in another application, you must export it from NX as a TIFF or JPEG.
